  1. Add the green chillies, garlic, cumin seeds & salt into a mortar or a mixer grinder jar & grind it into a coarse paste.
  2. In a large bowl add all the flours along with salt, coriander powder, turmeric powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, chilli & garlic paste, onion, fresh coriander, white sesame seeds & mix well to combine all the dry ingredients.
  3. Further add water gradually & bring all the dry flour together to form a semi-soft dough then continue to knead the dough for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the oil on the dough & incorporate it into the dough by kneading for 2-3 more minutes, cover the dough with damp cloth let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. To cook the thalipeeth, set a tawa over high flame & let it get hot until you shape the thalipeeth.
  6. You will require a flat platform & a muslin cloth to shape the thalipeeth.
  7. Dip the cloth into water & squeeze out all the extra water, then plate the cloth on the platform.
  8. Take a medium sized portion from the dough, form it into a roundel & then slightly press it to get an evenly sized thick disc.
  9. Place the portioned dough onto the cloth, wet your hand & carefully press the dough & flatten it out into a semi thin chapati over the muslin cloth, if your hand starts to stick then dip it in water again & continue to shape the thalipeeth.
  10. Then make 3-4 whole in the thalipeeth using your finger.
  11. Once the tawa gets hot & you have shaped the thalipeeth, add some ghee on the tawa, then spread the ghee on the tawa by wiping it with a kitchen towel.
  12. Lift the muslin cloth from one side & place it upside down on the tawa so that the thalipeeth sticks, then carefully peel off the muslin cloth from the top.
  13. Add ghee in the holes & on the sides, then separate the thalipeeth from the tawa using a flat spatula, cover & cook over medium low flame for 2-3 minutes.
  14. Further take the lid off, slip the thalipeeth & pour ghee in the holes & on the sides & cook for 2-3 minutes.
  15. Your delicious & healthy thalipeeth is ready, serve hot along with some curd, pickle & white butter.
